DescriptionThe Listener is a fantastical folly, a sort of sitootery (a place to sit out, an alcove, a place of retreat), a ‘machine for listening’. It appears to simultaneously hear, record and transmit fragments of narrative and personal accounts emerging from the environment in which it sits. With large trumpet-like shapes dominating its design, the viewer might recall gramophone horns, ear trumpets or pre-radar acoustic mirrors and listening devices that are overtly connected to ideas of audio transmission and reception; beautifully engineered and hand built, this sculpture is in part an attempt to visualize listening.
